More and more parents choose to send their children abroad during the basic education stage. Among many popular countries for studying abroad at a young age, Australia is sought after by parents due to multiple factors such as safety index, cost-effectiveness, and high quality of education.

Diverse courses and flexible teaching methods

"In the Commonwealth education system, Australia's secondary education aims to hope that they can establish their own life interests and friendships during the learning process, and acquire the knowledge, skills and values ​​for life and survival. Compared with other countries, Australia The middle school education is mainly focused on teachers, teaching methods, curriculum and care for students."

One is the admissions teacher, the other is the teacher in charge of the course, and the other two The name is the teacher in charge of life and the head of the grade.

There are many colleges and schools should be considered

At present, Australia’s primary and secondary schools are mainly divided into two types, “public” and “private” (“private” is sometimes called “non-public”).

Most private schools have separate schools for men and women. Many of them are boarding schools. International students can choose to enroll in public or private schools. However, the key to choosing which type of school in the end is that students make judgments based on their own needs. Therefore, the following four aspects can be considered when choosing a school.

1) Regional selection

在悉尼、墨尔本、布里斯班、佩斯、阿德莱德等大城市就读中学的优势在于学校数量较多、亲友多、较繁华;堪培拉、霍巴特等中小型城市则有语言环境好、更加安全、生活费用较便宜等优点。但去悉尼、墨尔本、布里斯班这三个热门城市要提前一年以上申请,墨尔本的多所公立高中近两年尤为紧张,2015年1月就读10年级、11年级的名额可能早在今年2月就已被一抢而空,现在多数家长排队等候的是2016年1月墨尔本和悉尼诸多名校的学位开放。

2) Choice of school nature

The ratio of public and private schools in Australia is 2:1. Generally speaking, the average hardware facilities and teachers of Australian private schools are better than public schools. However, in terms of cost performance, if students can apply to public high schools with higher teaching quality and higher enrollment rate, it is better than ordinary private high schools.
3) Feasibility of admission

The admission criteria for Australian secondary schools mainly include academic requirements and English proficiency. Some public high schools with relatively good teaching conditions even have an academic requirement of over 90, with excellent science, and some have to arrange additional written examinations and interviews. In terms of English proficiency, if a student has an ietls score, it is very helpful to apply for a good public high school, and many private high schools will require aeas (australian education assessment services) exams.

4) Middle school competitiveness

The strong competitiveness of middle schools refers to schools with many courses, inter-school cooperation, and high enrollment rate. Choosing a competitive school is equivalent to laying a stable platform for children. Therefore, it is recommended that students choose an Australian secondary school, combining their own subjective factors, such as academic background, English ability, and considering the financial preparation of the family. They should not be entangled in choosing the best one, but the most suitable one.
